I have a website with a lot of images, in kind of a tiled layout, it is a catalog of movies, each time a new movie comes up i update it, I also make the image a link to the IMDB review page. as you can imagine this is a lot of code, here is the code I am using:
obviously I am using css, however I don’t think you need worry about that as my only issue is, I want to be able to use (ASP I THINK) in order to load multiple images just using that one piece of code.
i think i may run into problems as i will also need a new IMDB link into the code, which has to be linked to the image obviously.
i am in need of help because i have a catalog of around 200 movies, and recently i deleted around 175 of these code segments and accidentally saved it and have no way of retrieving a back up.
I would look into creating a CSV file of all the movies. So the CSV would be :
movie_title, movie_image, movie_imdb_link
Repeat a line like this for all 200 movies
I’m a php developer so I would use that.. but it requires a server running php .. so might not be ideal but it then has a function ‘fgetcsv’.
Which you can use something like:
'; echo ''; echo ' '; //$movie == 3rd value in each csv row == imdb link echo ' '; //$movie == 2nd value in each csv row == image link echo ''; echo '
That’s one quick example – its all untested but should work.
